Producer Sarah Gustavus and the Line opinion panelists debate the pros and cons of the plan and possible solutions to address homelessness in Albuquerque.

  1. ‘The SE Quadrant has a history of housing a lot of that stuff’ is absolutely incorrect. There are zero services for the homeless at Tramway and Historic Route 66. There are no jobs there. Vagrancy, crime and panhandling have gotten out of control since the bus turn around was added to the Singing Arrow Park area. The ‘problem’ is there because the city is literally sending the problem there 150 buses at a time. The east gateway was promised redevelopment and will fight these attempts to convert it to a homeless quadrant instead.

    And for the record, Debbie O’Malley was booed at the community meeting when she was announced as the spearhead for the Tiny Home Village project. Not even remotely attacked.
